Ha'penny Pier, Harwich
The name of this pier originates from the d (half an old penny) toll charged. Construction of the pier began in 1852 and it was first opened in July 1853. It was a popular departure point for paddle steamers until after the First World War.

Originally the pier was twice as long as the present one but one half burnt down in 1927.
